What is ARTUNER?
ARTUNER is a platform that offers collectors the opportunity to buy contemporary art from a series of exhibitions created by Eugenio Re Rebaudengo in consultation with art world experts. ARTUNER exhibits both young and established artists who are featured in a curated setting. We provide an intimate visual experience, in order to create an environment traditionally reserved only for established collectors. An unparalleled level of support and expert insight sets ARTUNER apart from their online competitors. Exhibitions on ARTUNER (or, curations) are accompanied by a series of insights that relate to artists on display and pertinent themes surrounding the work that is being shown. Curations are assembled with the assistance of highly regarded curators who are currently involved with, or have worked with, leading institutions in the artworld. Expert guidance is offered both on and off the site with Eugenio and our London based staff personally responding to questions and enquiries about the works on display. ARTUNER specializes in offering original works of art for insider prices. All artworks can be viewed in ultra-high definition, rendering every detail of the work visible and/or "viewed in a room" to scale. Exclusive content on the site is aimed at keeping collectors informed about trends in collecting art: articles range from the care of fine art photography to interviews with museum directors, collectors and artists. In addition to offering online curations ARTUNER has hosted a variety of physical exhibitions including Gabriele de Santis’s On the Run and an exhibition of new works by Phoebe Collings-James both at the Italian Cultural Institute in London. During Artissima in Turin (November 2014) ARTUNER hosted the exhibition Bunkering in Paradise/The Rest of Us Just Live in It in a warehouse space that included works by Adriano Costa, Max Ruf and Sebastian Lloyd Rees. At present, ARTUNER is showing an exhibition of new works by Matthew Stone. Prior to displaying these works online, ARTUNER hosted a talk between the artist and the revered curator, Norman Rosenthal, at the artist’s studio in London. In mid-march ARTUNER will host the online component of the exhibition Open Source: Art at the Eclipse of Capitalism which includes works by: Allora & Calzadilla, Cory Arcangel, Bernadette Corporation, Ian Cheng, Simon Denny, Jeff Elrod, Jana Euler, John Gerrard, Calla Henkel & Max Pitegoff, Pierre Huyghe, Alex Israel, Daniel Keller, John Kelsey, Josh Kline, Agnieszka Kurant, Ajay Kurian, Louise Lawler, Mark Leckey, Michel Majerus, Megan Marrin & Tyler Dobson, Katja Novitskova, Albert Oehlen, Laura Owens, Seth Price, Richard Prince, Sebastian Lloyd Rees, Tabor Robak, Pamela Rosenkranz, Hugh Scott-Douglas, Steven Shearer, Reena Spaulings, Frank Stella, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Kelley Walker and Christopher Wool.
